Profanity-laced yet well-written, this audiobook memoir by the creator of "Deadwood" and "NYPD Blue" is unique because the author, David Milch, is suffering from Alzheimer's. Milch narrates the prologue with appropriate sobriety and drama; his rough-and-tumble voice matches an equally rough-and-tumble life. It's remarkable and impressive that Michael Harney's bass voice so closely resembles Milch's in his tour-de-force performance of the rest of the audiobook. Despite the author's excellent insights on the art of creative writing, his lifetime of self-destructive behavior is on every page. Harney is highly effective at re-creating the soul and style of Milch, making him simultaneously likable and unlikable. This audiobook requires patience, but the listener is amply rewarded with insights on the creative process. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
